A-Rod Grocery is changing its name.

The grocery store was changed from Pena Grocery to A-Rod Grocery thirteen years ago while the third baseman was still playing with the Seattle Mariners.

Rodriguez eventually came to join the Yankees and patrons at the store soon believed that Rodriguez may even had a owners stake in the place.

Instead the store is owned by 41-year-old Richard Rodriguez who is not related to the Yankees third baseman.

“I got tired of all these people complaining” said Rodriguez to the NY Daily News.

“Why should I have to listen to all of them? It’s not fair. I don’t even know the guy.”

Currently Rodriguez has no idea what he will name the grocery store but customers will be happy as long as A-Rod is gone.
